Contributions 2022

The Call for Contributions for the 2022 eucen Open Fora is closed. Thanks to all the authors who have submitted their abstracts!

Selected works will be invited to present during the Open Fora. The presentations will be short (10 min max) but will give you the opportunity to reach new audiences and promote your research.

Selected works will be invited to submit a full paper that will be considered for the forthcoming edition of the European Journal of University Lifelong Learning – EJULL. Those authors interested to proceed need to submit their manuscripts within the deadlines and following the House Style of the journal.
